Fitness Control

Posted by Gentledom14 on Sat 4 Jun 2011 to brawn_and_bunnies

The fact is, any one with a good daily routine has to push themselves not to skip a workout due to whatever reason your mind will try to give you.

Considering the hardest part of Fitness routine is willpower,

Do the subs on this group find it easier to workout for their Dom/me rather than themselves?, or is it something that you rather not have them controlling?

And have any of the Dom/mes found difference in their subs commitment to fitness when its controlled by them in some form?

I find that working out in some way "for" or under the control of a Dom does help, largely I suspect because I want to please him. But I don't think it would work if either I wasn't motivated, or if he didn't really care. So a Dom's involvement can act as additional incentive to be disciplined (i.e. to workout regularly), and to push yourself that bit harder. And clearly, if there are rewards for 'good behaviour', that helps too :-D

There's a somebody I'm longing to see, I hope that he turns out to be, someone to watch over me
